Where is the Best Place in the Country to Move for Work?

If you are looking for the answer to my question "Where is the best place in the country to move for work," the answer is Round Rock, Texas. Not only is Round Rock drawing additional residents each day, it is listed on the national 2009 Forbes.com list of Best 25 Places to Move for Work. People and businesses are finding Round Rock to be one of the best places to develop business.

Round Rock is also one of the fastest growing cities in the USA, located just 15 miles from Austin. The ongoing City Master Plan of Round Rock can take credit for the great economic and quality-of-life achievements, including a great park system and school district as well as some of the lowest crime, property taxes and utility rates in Texas. 

Another major factor in Round Rock’s economic success is the arrival of Dell Computer-sponsored Dell Diamond Stadium, home of the minor baseball league team Round Rock Express, which is affiliated with the Houston Astros.

The job industry focus in Round Rock centers on Life Sciences, Computers and IT Technologies, Clean Energy, and Manufacturing.

Between Round Rock and the city limits of Austin, it is estimated that there are 15,000 job openings listed on the Internet, in newspapers, on company bulletin boards, as well as other sources.

Located within 10 miles of the center of Round Rock, the Top 10 Jobs are listed as follows:
